Yes Ümitköy has also a station on Çayyolu line, can be seen in the map posted by Reingmann.

Çayyolu and Ümitköy are neighboring districts, so close to each other.

Yes. All those districts, Konutkent, Koru Sitesi, Bilkent, Ümitköy (the biggest one among those), Beysukent, Çayyolu, Angora Evleri, and so.. are located on the Eskisehir Road side by side. Only Bilkent is quite apart, closer to the city.

Usually people prefer saying Ümitköy or Çayyolu to this whole region. The potential name of a potential municipality is those two. Also it was also proposed to call new municipality on Eskisehir Road, the "Bilim Kenti / Science City" as 4 big university campuses and 2 Techno-cities are also included here.

It hosts the organised industry zones and residental districts like Batikent, Eryaman and Sincan. They are well planned but they are older (except Eryaman) and so a bit less attractive than western suburbs.

Still that area holds 2 new big parks, one of them (Harikalar Diyari) is the biggest urban park of Turkey, which is also recognised as one of the biggest urban parks of Europe.

Eryaman District










Harikalar Diyari - Biggest Urban Park of Turkey - 1.320.000 m2

The center of the park

wonderful....

Ankara is progressing and changing... But what I am waiting for is the restoration of old Ankara, the area arond the castle, Republican buildings and Roman sutrctures... We should have this part too. Republic of Turkey has born at this area and we forgot it...

You are right, and unfortunately it is the only touristic spot, tourists leave city with the bad image of old town, without even noticing the modern city around it.

Well, there is currently 3 big urban-renewal projects in Ankara, one of them is on the east side, south side and Çankaya (center of Modern Ankara). But renewing historical districts are harder. You cannot just demolish something and put a park with skyscraper residences.
